I don’t really care for football. I don’t really care for pizza, and I especially don’t care for wings. So, I made yesterday into a Souperbowl Sunday!
This is one of the most simple recipes ever, as minestrone is a forgiving soup. Add whatever, season with whatever, and then eat a big bowl and smile.
Here are the specifics for this particular bowl of soup:
Two large carrots, chopped
One stalk of celery, sliced thickly
Two or Three cloves of garlic, minced
A half cup of frozen green beans
A half cup of frozen onions
Three and a half cups of water
Two vegetable bouillon cubes
Twenty-eight ounce can of crushed tomatoes
Three-quarters of a teaspoon dried basil
One tablespoon dried parsley
A pinch of rosemary
Add all of that to a soup pot, and bring it to a boil. Cover, and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes. Then add:
Three small zucchini, cubed
Fifteen ounce can of kidney beans, drained
A half cup whole wheat elbow macaroni
Bring it back to a boil, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the macaroni is cooked.
I got six big servings out of this pot of soup. A little cheese or nutritional yeast would go well with this as well.
Pizza and wings? What pizza and wings?
